The child, Josiah, is attributed by Farlow (1911) to both Joseph BALLARD, Junior, (p. 74) and to his father, Joseph BALLARD, Senior (p. 71).  Given the birth date of Josiah (22 Jun 1699) and the marriage date of Joseph BALLARD, Jr., and Rebecca JOHNSON (17 Aug 1698, ten months earlier), it is far more reasonable (to me) that Josiah was the child of Joseph and Rebecca (JOHNSON) BALLARD, Jr., and not that of Joseph and Rebeckah (REA) BALLARD, Sr., and that the mixup was the result of both couples being named:  "Joseph and Rebecca BALLARD."  I also suspect that the child, Jeremiah, belongs here, too, and not with the father.
